  4. A teenager’s invention could help save the world from plastic pollution

    July 27, 2018 by Mr Richo

    Read the following Kid’s News article about innovation:

    Once you have read and understood the article, respond by answering the following questions in your English book:

    1. Outline the process that took place from when Angelina first got the idea about inventing this new type of plastic to the stage she is at now with her invention. Present each step in dot points with an arrow leading down to the next step so you have an easy-to-read explanatory diagram of her journey from the start to now.
    2. Was this the same process you used to develop your Shark Tank idea? If not, how was it different?
    3. What are the possible next steps for Angelina’s new plastic invention?

  6. Maths – Tell Everything You Can!

    July 26, 2018 by Mr Richo

    Look at the images below. The graphs and the houses look like they have very little in common.

    BUT – mathematically they have many similarities.


    In your math inquiry book you need to use your math knowledge and language to tell everything you can about the two sets of drawings. Try to include an image. You might want to set up two columns but it’s up to you how it is set out.

    (think about: shapes, fractions, area, volume, colour, lines and more!!)

    The best result will have many similarities as well as differences.



  7. Shark Tank Proposal

    July 26, 2018 by Mr Richo

    All of you are well underway with your Shark Tank ideas so it’s time to formalise some of your thinking in a Project Proposal.

    With any business idea, investors will want to see that you have thought through things like:

    • how much your item will cost?
    • how much will you item cost to produce?
    • who would want to buy your item?
    • how will you make them want to buy your item?

    These are things you have all been thinking of over the past few weeks as you have been developing your ideas.

    Now it is time to record your thinking in the attached Project Proposal. Download the document and complete each section prior to your pitch. You will need to save your Project Proposal to Google Classroom.
